I don't think dissolving is the way to remove it. Dissolving risks spreading it around and penetrating any porous parts. Better to degrade it and remove the degredation mechanically (scrub)

Most "granite" isn't, but it probably has silica anyway. The acidic silica should have initiated polymerization near instantly, so it probably has not penetrated. If the surface was basic like glass it would let go on its own in a few days.

Within a few days the water in your body will degrade into small molecular pieces the cured polymer trapped in a wound closure and you pee out the pieces. Don't need to break it down that much on the rock.
